ABOUT THE BOOK:
With a life and career spanning nearly a century, Julius Shulman is credited with furthering the mid-century modernism movement through his flawless photographs of the pioneering architecture of Richard Neutra and Pierre Koenig, among others. While Shulman's pictures comprise the most published images of the modernist movement this new monograph, JULIUS SHULMAN LOS ANGELES, presents many never-before-seen images on a subject closest to Shulman's heart: Los Angeles and its environs-including Palm Springs and the San Fernando Valley.
The photographs in this book offer the clearest insight into Shulman's career as a photographer, including his street photography, night images, portraits, and even celebrity work, all taken with the eye of showing Los Angeles as a living organism, simultaneously vibrant and volatile depending on the neighborhood.
Selected from his personal collections as well as his official archives, the photographs included in this book represent not only lesser-known and never-before-seen material, but also some of Shulman's own personal favorites. JULIUS SHULMAN LOS ANGELES is a guide to the spirit of truly unique place.
